Please join BOSS for our 5th Annual Rising Stars Youth Leadership Gala!
These Youth Are Our Future ~ Join Us To Celebrate Their Progress and Resilience!
The BOSS 5th Annual Rising Stars Youth Leadership Gala will once again honor local young people who are facing serious hardships – homelessness, criminal justice involvement, substance abuse recovery, poverty, family crises – and are working hard towards college and other life goals despite those challenges.
Youth are nominated for the Rising Stars by BOSS and our partners — Berkeley High School, Berkeley Technology Academy, and Berkeley Youth Alternatives — in 5 categories:
- Caring for Family
- Role Model
- New Direction
- Community Involvement
Not ‘typical’ high achievers, these are young people who are determined to do the best they can and fight for their dreams though it may feel like every day is a challenge. This is a one-of-a-kind celebration!!
Tickets are just $30 or 2 for $50! Sponsorships are also available, with promotional benefits. Purchase below!
Also, visit our Silent Auction — available for bid online now!! Winners will be announced at the gala!
- Performances by BHS Jazz and Kev Choice
- Keynote remarks by Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin
- Remarks by 2017 Rising Star graduate and special guests
- Parents Award sponsored by State Senator Nancy Skinner
- YOUTH AWARDS & SCHOLARSHIPS
- Buffet dinner, networking, and inspiring stories from future leaders!
